"He is an unpredictable composer, sometimes on the verge of brilliance and sometimes performing a balancing act between the strange and the unlistenable."
That its the best summary of Revell I have heard to date. His scores fluctuate between brilliantly cutting edge and barely tolerable noise, rarely landing in between, something I think this album manages to do. You can take that how you like.
As Christian pointed out, it is interesting to note that the highlight of this album is the sensitive, emotional music, not the action. Thus I would say it is a good score, simply not what we expect from super-hero music.
